This Week in Teams, Craig and Jay jump into the October 2021 Microsoft Teams Team product blog where ALL the goodies that were announced for commercial and US Government tenants. We jumped into the Government announcements first, because Jay wanted to and because for the first time in forever, there seem to be a lot of them. We discussed how often times the Government tenants feel left behind in all the great teams news, but now it seems Microsoft is trying hard for speedier delivery times. Then we jumped through all of the end-user focused features, and a few management features, throughout the commercial tenants.
Day 2 was kicked off by details around Microsoft Viva followed by seemingly small details around Power Platform and Power BI (such as Excel Online’s integration with Power BI pivot tables and object-level security), Lists (offline mode, what!), and Dynamics (see the Day 1 Webinars announcement) — all of which are major features, but seemingly small compared to the Mixed Reality scenes of Mesh.
In this episode, Craig and Jay discuss the top 12 Gifts of Teams – oh – we cover 12 categories of Teams with a recap some of the top releases of 2020, mixed with some of the classic features of #MicrosoftTeams and why they’re still so important
This Week in Teams Craig and Jay review the November 2020 “What’s New in Teams” blog and tell you what (we think) is most important! We’ll also tell you a little about why PowerApps is insanely cool, and maybe update you on our Christmas decorations.
